Cycling around Leverkusen – the gateway to the Bergisches Land region.
Destination Leverkusen, the gateway to the Bergisches Land. An extended bike tour is one of the best ways to discover the hills and valleys of the Bergisches Land. Reservoirs, rivers and lakes cast wondrous blues between the scenic hills. Anyone who has cycled along the rippling Wupper River, far from any hustle and bustle of a city, explored the Balkan route by bike, or dreamily gazed at ships on the banks of the River Rhine in Hitdorf, knows exactly what we mean. Leverkusen is the green gateway to the Bergisch region on its doorstep.
We, the ‘Lust auf Leverkusen’ team, know the best bike paths and disused railroad trails through the Bergisch region. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely bike ride, a sporty post-work challenge, or a longer cycling adventure – there’s something for everyone. The varied low mountain landscapes offer pure relaxation for a few hours, a day or a whole week on your bike.
Idyllic little villages with half-timbered and slate houses are perfect places to stop and spend the night. In Leverkusen, we love our little breaks from everyday life and appreciate our hearty, Rhenish gastronomy: breweries here are just as part of the culture as hearty dishes and fragrant baked goods.
Leverkusen is a particularly good starting point for our bike tours – this small city on the Rhine has you in good hands. You can also visit Cologne and Düsseldorf during your stay. ‘Lust auf Leverkusen’ shows you how livable and lovable our city is.
Sounds like a great holiday? It is. You just have to do it – head off on your bike!
